Product Notes

'WRECK' is the debut full length LP from Minneapolis three-piece Claps. With 9 tracks of surging synth tones and dark bass notes, a breath of pop is found in it's dark whispers. WRECK beckons fans of Depeche Mode, OMD and Joy Division, though stays true to their alliance to minimal synth by relying decidedly on the heart of the analog synth. Claps prior EP's 'No Party' and 'New Science' featured exclusively analog synths, stripped down melodies, detached vocals as well as remixes from local Minneapolis musicians. However WRECK has taken a step away from the remixes and solely analog sounds, most noticeably by adding a bass guitar played by Sara Abdelaal creating a more raw and garage rock aspect to the album. The voice of Patrick Donohoe ascends over the nightfall and serenades into abstraction as you decide whether to dance or to brood. The hooks, and verses are burned into your memory as a whirling dissonance keeps you enthralled. The lyrics take the listener dancing down the path of romance, heartache and all around emotion, while Jed Smentek's sequences and tones vow to move the body. Recorded and mixed by Ryan Olcott.
